Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Offshore engineering is an important field of engineering. In order to continue our daily activities and industrial processes, energy production is essential. Energy can be produced from different resources, but an important part of today’s energy resources are located offshore. Because of this reason, there are many critical infrastructures operating under offshore conditions such as oil and gas platforms, offshore renewable energy devices, offshore pipelines, etc. These structures are subjected to harsh marine environments, which can cause damage such as fatigue and corrosion. Therefore, this Special Issue will provide a compilation of numerical, experimental, and analytical studies related to “Structural Analysis and Failure Prevention in Offshore Engineering”, which covers a wide range of topics including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Structural analysis of offshore renewable energy devices, such as offshore wind, tidal energy, wave energy, and floating PV systems;
  • Structural analysis of offshore platforms;
  • Structural analysis of pipelines and subsea systems;
  • Risk and reliability-based approaches applied to offshore structures;
  • Structural health monitoring of offshore structures;
  • Corrosion;
  • Ice–structure interactions;
  • Collision mechanics;
  • Inspection and repair of offshore structures;
  • Fatigue and fracture.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
